The Best Part of Bedtime is The Promise of Tomorrow
Every night we say goodnight. But tonight we ask, “What will tomorrow bring? An odd-sounding song? A worried-looking bug? A mysterious rock?” Most likely, all of the above. In a modern take on the classic goodnight book, rather than focusing on going to bed, this little boy contemplates the next day and all of the wonderful, dreamy, and silly things that are to come. Whimsical, poignant, and hopeful, this sweet book from award-winning and bestselling author and illustrator Dave Eggers and Lane Smith is a bedtime story for tomorrow and every day after.
Dave Eggers is the author of many books, including What Can a Citizen Do? and Her Right Foot. He is the cofounder of: Voice of Witness, an oral-history series focused on human rights; 826 National, a network of writing and tutoring centers; and ScholarMatch, which connects donors and under-resourced students to make college possible. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
